East Africa: UK Pumps in 47 Billion for Local Refugee Care

As the world marks the Refugee Day today, the United Kingdom has announced an additional 15 million pounds (47.158bn/-) in humanitarian aid to help the ever-increasing displaced Burundians in Tanzania. The support brings the total UK assistance to the current refugee influx to £29.25 million (90bn/-) since June 2015. This follows a previously provided £14.25 million for food, medical care and clean water to help the growing number of Burundians who have fled their country since April 2015 to seek refuge in Tanzania. The additional funds will help provide food, water, social services and education for the refugees as well as providing more support to the Tanzanian communities that are hosting them. In a latest count, the number of Burundian refugees in Tanzania has now reached 143,000, which is over half of the 267,000 Burundian refugees in the region, with up to 100 continuing to arrive daily.
